Do you ever dread going to the salon because you are scared walking out looking like a total wreck? Or have you ever shown the hairdresser the haircut of your favorite celebrity, only to find out that it does not look good on you? Yes, we’ve all had our share of embarrassing haircuts, but by now we should know better, right?
There are 6 basic face shapes: Oval, diamond, square, heart, round, and oblong. Look into the mirror, study the proportions of your forehead and chin, and figure out which shape your face takes. After, you can try searching for celebrities with the same face shape to find what kind of haircuts they usually have. Do they go for the pixie cut? Or let their hair flow long and strong? Haircuts are meant to face your shape and highlight your best features, so make sure that you also take into consideration whether or not you have a strong jawline, chiseled cheekbones, or a big forehead.
Here are a few celebrities you can check out depending on your face shape.
Oval – Rihanna, Beyonce, Gigi Hadid
Diamond – Scarlett Johansson, Viola Davis
Square – Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow
Heart – Katie Holmes, Tyra Banks, Miley Cyrus
Round – Cameron Diaz, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez
Oblong – Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler
Don’t be afraid to experiment, but also research on your best picks so as not to regret any bold decisions. Happy haircutting!
